YouTube Gets Another Face-lift

Jan 27, 2012

Following its homepage redesign in December, YouTube's Browse, Video Editor, and Video Manager pages are being nipped and tucked to bring them in line with the rebranding that Google has pushed out to many of its sites and products.

The Browse page's design has been simplified and focuses on helping users discover new channels and videos. YouTube displays the most viewed videos as well as recommendations based on the user's viewing habits. YouTube also added a "play all" button, which will play all the videos in a certain section or channel.

The timeline and moving playhead on the Video Editor page now look much more similar to the interfaces on editing programs such as Apple's iMovie. The Video Manager had received some modifications back in December, but YouTube has made some changes based on user feedback, including adding a search history section. YouTube has also re-added the like and dislike statistics and the ability to sort by popularity.
